A quantitative automated immunoassay for fibrinogen/fibrin degradation products.

We describe a prototype quantitative automated assay for fibrin and fibrinogen degradation products, a particle-enhanced turbidimetric inhibition immunoassay (PETINIA) in the Du Pont aca discrete clinical analyzer. This assay involves a latex particle reagent with covalently bound fibrinogen and a polyclonal antiserum raised in rabbits against human… CONTINUE READING
